Temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s overnight after a nice day Thursday.
Yes, it's nearly May and we've had some pleasant spring days, but those cold nights are being stubborn. So there is another freeze warning for overnight and the early morning. The National Weather Service says temperatures will fall below freezing overnight, with temperatures dropping into the mid- to upper 20s in most areas by sunrise. The freeze warning is in effect from 2-8 a.m. Several hours of below freezing temperatures can damage unprotected vegetation, especially fruit trees on which blossoms have formed. So, cover up anything you want to protect and cross your fingers we escape the wrath of Jack Frost.

Temperatures will drop into the 30s, so frost is likely overnight.
It's hard to believe with the bright sunshine we've enjoyed today, but there's a frost advisory in effect overnight. Temperatures won't go quite as low as they have the last couple of nights, but will dip into the 30s. So from 2-8 a.m. Friday, conditions will be favorable for the formation of frost late, the National Weather Service says. Damage to unprotected vegetation is likely, so cover up your sensitive outdoor plants. This should be the last night for frost and freeze warnings for a while. Friday there's a chance of showers and thunderstorms after 2 a.m., with a low around 46 degrees. Showers and thunderstorms are likely Saturday but it'll be warmer, up to the mid-60s.

The service has issued a freeze warning for Macomb County that will remain in effect from 11 p.m. Monday to 10 a.m. Tuesday. Temperatures are expected to drop into the 20s tonight, which NWS reports will "likely lead to a killing freeze for the plants that have sprouted across southeast Michigan." This means newly budded and sensitive outdoor plants could be killed if left uncovered.
